    aRGB leads outside of case

    You could take an RS232 cable, cut it in half and use a PCI slot RS232 bracket.

    So if your a normal user and hate GPU mining,get over it.Try this

    There are many calculators that will figure a rough estimate. HERE is one that @.1USD/kWh shows roughly $19.00/day. Change the gpu numbers to reflect how many you have.

    Worth upgrading from 970 EVO M.2 2280 to Sabrent 1TB Rocket NVMe 4.0 ?

    Unless you are upgrading to a higher capacity drive, I would stay with the EVO.

    Windows 7 Pro and Windows 10 Pro Dual Boot System ???

    You also have the option of installing Win10 on a completely separate drive and switch between which boots, by changing the BIOS boot order.

    GPT/MBR considerations migrating data from older computers

    Can I pick your brain - Threadripper system

    I hear you. Keep up with the times or get left behind. My education is mostly in EE but my passion for video games made me learn 3d modeling early. That transferred into me doing prototyping and design work.

    Can I pick your brain - Threadripper system

    I haven't had any issues so far. Most of my workload is doing Solidworks rendering and even then the average render time for me is roughly 30-90 minutes. I went from a 5820k I7 and for comparison, similar jobs took roughly 8 hours. Maximum recorded temperature was 85* that I observed and...

    Can I pick your brain - Threadripper system

    I have a similar setup to what you are building with a Prime TRX40pro for a mainboard powered by a Seasonic 1000W, in addition to a Quadro rtx4000. The heatsink is a NH-U14S-TR4-SP3. Temperatures are very good for an air cooler and usually high 70s under load.

    Has Anyone Ever De-RGB'd RAM?

    I would go to the local Staples or similar, get some sticky vinyl tape and either cover the ram or put a whole sheet on the inside of the tempered glass.

    Surveillance camera with 30ft cord

    For recording you can use Ispy. It supports many types of video sources and with a USB extender, you could get your cam to work.

    Seasonic: Hard to find!

    I just ordered a couple from Amazon and they shipped on the advertised date. Here is a deal I think is a good value, at least during these times.

    Looking for a gaming chair.

    I bought THIS earlier this year and have been happy with it. Its sturdy and wide. They also make a version with the bottom being mesh, but I found this one to be more comfortable. I did get to test drive it at a local Jordan's furniture though.

    So, apparently MOSTLY everyone needs to return their RTX 3080 / 3090 because of "cheap" components. I'm def returning my EVGA 3090.

    I remember when the 2080ti space invader problem crept up. Nvidia stepped up and had a replacement at my door within 3 days of reporting problem, and that is before I sent my card back. I would give them the benefit of doubt to get this sorted, although from what I read, it is the aftermarket...
